From the mists of the Iron Age, through the Roman and Medieval periods, right up to the present day, Brecon has remained one of the focal points of south-east Wales. This collection of over 200 photographs takes the reader on a journey through historic Brecon and its many surrounding communities, including Talybont-on-Usk, Llanfrynach, and Llangorse. "Around Brecon" charts the development of the area over the past 160 years and includes some very rare photographs from as early as the 1840s, giving the reader a unique insight into the lives of the residents of the town, from the Georgian and Victorian periods to the present day. Now undergoing something of a renaissance, the town of Brecon is once again rising to prominence as a bustling, lively community. This book will appeal to residents and newcomers, old and young alike, and give the reader a chance to experience the highs and lows of life in one of Wales' most historic regions.
